St. Nicholas was a believer in Jesus and was even imprisoned for his beliefs. He, like John the Baptist, knew that Jesus was the creator, not a created being. On Christmas, we celebrate His birth, but when we become Christians, He celebrates our rebirth!

Just as we cannot save anyone from his or her sin, neither could John the Baptist, but we can point to the one who can. We must prepare our hearts for His coming. Not just once, and not just at Christmas, but daily.

Associating with those who cause division in the church or enabling those whom can work but do not, is wrong. Scripture teaches us to be busy and work hard. We set a bad example when we proclaim Christ but are lazy busybodies.

We are in a battle, but God has promised to protect us from the evil one. His faithfulness does not depend on our faith and He is faithful forever. He is faithful to love us even when we are unlovable and His compassions never fail.
